Since i started this medication my health has only gotten worse. All in all, i am pretty uncomfortable. Because of this, i have stopped taking this medication because it is only counterproductive towards my health. I'm going to try to use Tirosint instead, hopefully this will work better for me.

Got this for pain after my kneecap popped out. For 2.5 weeks i used 3x 600 ibuprogen and 4x1000 paracetamol but after i took 5mg ocycodon, seriously pain free! One i was itchy all over my body, this went away after a shower. For a while i felt tired and nauseous. After three days i stopped feeling like a zombie and this went away.

I have a much better experience with this Fluvoxamine then with Mirtazapine. I had nothing but bad nightmares and strange dreams. Now with the medication Fluvoxamine I don't have these problems anymore. I think very positively of it.
